How I Exiled My Inner Bitch seemed promising from the synopsis. However, I could not get into the book. It is about Dionne, who grew up with older sisters that were triplets. In order to try and make a playmate for herself, she invented a couple of imaginary friends. One ends up going away and one is there to stay. (They kind of reminded me of the angel on your shoulder and devil on your shoulder and the devil was the one who stuck around.) Her sisters always made fun of her for having an imaginary friend and let everyone at school know about it too so she was always picked on.
She ends up meeting a guy and things seem to be going well… but then I just got too bored to really continue. The characters weren’t capturing me and the book had a lot of dialogue. Ultimately I decided my time was better spent on something else and I did not finish it.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Inner Bitch quote, “Take your tongue out of my mouth, I’m kissing you good-bye.”
Dionne is 36, and still hooked on the imaginary twin she invented to get her through her desolate childhood. With such an odd companion, long-term relationships are impossible and she is doomed to live her live as a serial monogamist, until the Go Along Guy shows up. Greg has denial on intravenous, so Dionne’s quirks simply pass him by and, pretty soon, shallow love blossoms. Unfortunately, what are also blossoming are Greg’s teenage daughters. They don’t like Dionne and their hormones are raging.
